              The restaurant on site is excellent and the continental breakfast included in the rooms so you can help yourself and have it when you want.

              Pretty little country lodge and cabin accommodations in the heart of the Hunter Valley wine country. Beautiful scenery surrounds the lodge, which has a premium Italian restaurant on site. The rooms in the lodge are very spacious, clean and comfortable with a king bed and small efficiency space and sitting area. There is free Wi Fi Included. The fridge is fully stocked for a nice continental breakfast, complete with their own homemade granola and yogurt, etc. It is ideally situated across from First Creek Winery (Hunter Valley wine maker of the year), as well as the Pokolbin Gardens. There are a myriad of restaurants...hint...make reservations, in the surrounding area and an excellent gourmet cheese shop, called Smelly Cheese that also serves "to die for" gelato. You need a car to get around the area or have to be part of a wine tour. You must visit Peppertree winery for some of the best "reds" around! We also liked Tower winery that is along the same road. The Hermitage Lodge was a nice place to stay and family owned and run, so you get the personal touch.

              Location, comfort, the staff, comfortable and romantic spa. The satff were able to upgrade our room at no extra cost after some misinformation from Booked.net. They make their own muesli for the continental breakfast and their cooked breakfasts are great and good value. Sitting in the sun every morning and enjoying breakfast was definitely a highlight.

              Booked.net has uploaded some incorrect photos and information for this hotel. Be aware that a 'double room with jacuzzi' actually means a double room with a small corner shower/spa. We made this mistake and complained. The staff were extremely helpful in putting us in a room with a much bigger spa. The hotel only offers jacuzzi's in their premier suites.

              It was nice as u get a veranda outside of your room and breakfast was provided for u in the fridge, enjoying the peace and quite in the morning while breathing the fresh air was just what we wanted. They didn't mind we move the sofa closer to our bed so our baby could use it as his bed. They also didn't charge me for the local phone calls made. The bathroom is a bit small. The Italian restaurant is very busy must book to be able to dine there. It was alright not as good as we expected. There are plenty of other better ones near by. Make sure u get the free brouchers

              Great stay we were made to feel very welcome. Fantastic restaurant good quality food. We enjoyed walking round the vines, peace and quiet compared to the hectic pace of Sydney. Well done guys.

              Loved the greeting from staff on arrival which was really welcoming and loved the feel of the place. The room was just what we needed for a romantic escape and the location made visiting wineries very easy. Plus the breakfast with muesli made on site was really tasty and allowed us to feel completely secluded.

              We didn't have long enough with a 2 night stay and would definitely come again

              It's countryside location, proximity to places to visit,large clean room with excellent facilities. Good restaurant.

              It's cost. Perhaps because of the exchange rate, the hotel and restaurant are very expensive compared with European prices. But the cost is comparable with other hotels in Australia. It is a very expensive country.

              The Hermitage Lodge was set in a beautiful location. The Italian restaurant attached was amazing, the views from the balcony we lovely. The staff were extremely helpful. I would certainly return and stay at the Hermitage Lodge.

              Outstanding from all aspects - only suggestion would be to include 2 basins in any future bathroom.

              Very spacious and comfortable room with a 2-sweater sofa bed. Breakfast that comes with the room is mediocre tho.

              9.2

              Close proximity to most Hunter Valley Vineyards

              We were a bit disappointed with the Continental breakfast in the fridge, a cooked breakfast was available for an extra cost.
